The Delgado Zuleta family named their sherry after the famous Flamenco dancer Aurora Jauffre, dubbed 'La Goya', as they believed it shared her intense, elegant, yet powerful qualities. Grape Variety: Palomino Fino Region: SanLucar de Barrameda Winery: Bodegas Delgado Zuleta Alcohol % ABV: 15%
Having produced sherry for more than two and a half centuries since 1744, Delgado Zuleta is the oldest family-owned winery in the Jerez and Manzanilla districts. It is located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a small coastal town at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river.
This sherry has a distinct and punchy camomile (manzanilla is Spanish for chamomile) and almond nose as well as a complex, salty tang with lime overtones from the chalky 'albariza' soils in which it's grown. This is a manzanilla pasada - it has been aged for a relatively long time (8 years, compared to manzanilla standard of about 4 ½).
